Analysis requests of specific works (time signature, harmony, etc) are currently not allowed in Music SE. I understand why: "Questions on identifying (or finding) a particular song, genre, instrument, etc. are off-topic since they are rarely useful to future readers."
I agree with this, but I a...
@percusse - if your question is simply the title question, I'll edit it to just focus on that, because it is obvious from all of the answers that the bit that has thrown us all is the rest of your question. You have included a lot of extraneous information which just obscures the key question.
@JCPedroza One more question!
@JCPedroza Did my answer make sense? I like it, but I think there will be some challenges...
I'm seeing a rapid trend towards worse and worse question quality. It gets to the point where I'm asking myself *"Why did I even help this guy? He neither has the will nor the capacity to understand the answer; I have just been wasting my time". That happens more and more often lately and is pret...
percusse - the rest of it was you pointing out a bad question that got closed, some better questions which hadn't - which is why we all asked for clarity. You eventually helped us understand what you wanted was to understand how policy is set, yes?
To prevent your question from being flagged and possibly removed, avoid asking subjective questions where …
every answer is equally valid: “What’s your favorite ______?” your answer is provided along with the question, and you expect more answers: “I use ______ for ______, what do you use?” there is no actual problem to be solved: “I’m curious if other people feel like I do.” you are asking an open-ended, hypothetical question: “What if ______ happened?” your question is just a rant in disguise: “______ sucks, am I right?”
Each community then modifies behaviour over time, based on subject etc
Where a post is ranty, mods will step in straight away
@percusse Yes, of course we can. The comment trail that you and I had went round and round a bit, and eventually ended up with me understanding you wanted to know where policy was set. So at that point the comments were deleted as unnecessary
@percusse Personally, I think that it is a valid question - it is outlined in various areas, but the fact that you needed to ask it despite being a member of various SE sites implies that it should be asked.
I think that really you asked a question that was initially not clear to me and others - it has been clarified, and now answered. As usual, rants have been removed - and I think you maybe just took that a little too personally, but that's okay
@percusse 3 folks answered. 2 asked you what you were trying to ask. Examples:
Because the rules do not apply here. Only imposed to questions people don't like. So this place is not moderated but owned. Then would you close all these questions or would you get a little bit more responsible and act more towards community?
Watering down should indicate to you why we see that as a rant. The guidelines on objective posts are quite good, in general. A question that is inflammatory will never get as good quality answers as one that is entirely objective, because some will agree with you that the status quo has problems and decry the powers that be, and others will take the eact opposite stance and argue - and arguing doesn't work in the SE model very well
@percusse if it's any consolation, I don't think this one should have been closed:
